Armed robbers attack Asokwa Deportivo

Ghana’s Division One side, Asokwa Deportivo, were attacked by armed robbers early Sunday morning on their way to Prestea to honour a match against Achiken in the Ghana Football Association Special Competition.


Items belonging to the team have all been taken away by the armed men numbering about six.

Items stolen were mobile phones, jerseys, player registration cards and many others were taken by the robbers.

According to a report, an amount of Gh2700 was taken from the owner of the club Mr Amidu Abdualla, Gh2000 from the driver and players as well as an IPhone 8+.

The team has since reported the incident to the Jocobu Police Station.

Highway robberies and accidents involving Ghanaian football clubs are not exactly new and many have been advocating against teams traveling to games at night time.

However, inadequate financial wherewithal means most teams are unable to spend an extra night at match venues because they are unable to afford the hotel bills.
